I must admit...

I must admit I made pancakes for dinner tonight...I am lazy....the frozen meatloaf was...well...still frozen...so I made pankcakes.

I made pancakes for dinner tonight - Dan's were plain, he has hockey...nothing fancy for dinner for him

I made pancakes for dinner tonight - the boys' were made with bananas (added to the plain batter I used for Dan)

I made pancakes for dinner tonight - this is what I put in mine - this is what happens when the boys leave the room to eat while mommy is still cooking

I must admit I made pancakes for dinner tonight and they were fabulous!!


I must admit my house is a pit
....no one believes me
... at least not those who haven't seen my home
Really its a scary home right now....
Want proof...I have lost my iron.
Yes...my iron...
That wonderful little appliance
This tool that makes my clothes look like new
That hides the fact they might have been pulled from the hamper
(no....I don't do that...)
Yup...lost my iron....who loses an iron
How do you misplace an appliance
Well I did it....
I've lost it
(that's not all I've lost)
So if I look wrinkled tomorrow...please excuse...

I must admit I have cookies in the oven
They are almost done
I have a glass of milk
It is half full
I can't wait to drink it....
so please enjoy my writing assignment,
while I enjoy my baked treat,
and have a lovely evening


Our weekly writing assignment from our lovely Mama Kat. I chose the prompt:

- Write a 26-line poem using all the letters of the alphabet, where the first line starts with the letter "A," the second "B," the third "C," etc., culminating with the final line starting with "Z."

I thought it would be a fun challenge....hope you like it.

A Mommy says, to her

Baby boy “precious

Child, you are my heart

Dear sweet boy

Each day you’re here

Fills my life with joy.”

Grinning wide

He grabs her hand

I love you mommy

Joyfully they walk

Killing time

Loving life.


Mommy says, to her

Newborn babe

Oh sweet angel my soul, my

Pride. In my arms please stay

Quietly they sit and


Sun shining

Through the window


Up to her husband

Very softly speaks

We have a beautiful life

Xactly as we are. In our crazy

Young hectic

Zoo called home.”

    My iron isn't lost. But I use it so rarely, that on the occassion I do take it out my children ask me what an ironing board is. What an iron is. They watch me as if I'm performing at a circus when I iron the clothing. In awe. Because they never see the iron used.
